      Optimized Link State Routing Protocol Version 2 (OLSRv2) and
      MANET Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP) Extension TLVs

Abstract

   This specification describes extensions to definitions of TLVs used

   the MANET Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP) to increase their
   abilities to accommodate protocol extensions.  This document updates
   RFC 7181 (OLSRv2) and RFC 6130 (NHDP).
